• Get a mentor
• Join a professional association, attend activities and get yourself known
• Get active on the LinkedIn WHS forums, there is currently some discussion that is relevant on the WHS Professional LinkedIn forum, be visible on the forums and promote your case
• Get a really good resume
• Learn how to manage job interviews
• Develop a highly advanced bull-dust detector as you will need it
• Network with safety people, many jobs are not advertised and come from personal referrals
• Accept the fact that recruitment consultants will frequently mess you around
